After a couple years of picking away at this, I finally beat it. The difficulty was frustrating at some spots and that actually made the game less enjoyable... but an over all pretty good game.

@leatherhat: so true.
This is one of my favorites PSP games, it's really enjoyable, great story, cutscenes and gameplay surprised I lot when I tried the demo. I hope it continue to sell and someday reach 1mil.

Well in worst case from Others alone it will have 60k this year... if it would show up again in the US charts it could do 500k this year. Too bad that we dont get full numbers like we do from PD Im sooooo curious to see how well is this game doing...

This year? No chance buddy. It's getting about 6k a week. At this rate, it would finish at 450k. To reach 600k this year, it would have to shoot up way more.

I think it could reach 500k+ this year though, 550k MAX.

This is, IMHO, the best PSP game. Great gameplay, good story, and amazing replay. Sad to see sales being so meh, but that doesn't detract from it's awsomeness.

I wish more PSP/PS3 games had the sort of connectivity that RR/R2 do. That's a very nice addition, especially for the replay it adds.

I'm on my second playthrough. I really like this game. The story and character development are the best so far of the Resistance games. Addicting, impressive gameplay for a portable, but the controls are fiddly. Plays well with the PS3 controller and also hooked up to a LCD TV through component cables. Looking forward to alternate storyline in infected mode. Game deserves better sales.

The game will have no issues IMO to pass the 400k with the current price, and even 600k if it gets the Greatest Hits or Platinum treatement....

People should check out older PSP titles and see their sales pattern before coming here and comment on sales ;)

PSP games usually have slower sales in Europe. Look at the sales of games like Force Unleashed. I wouldn't be surprised to see the two regions close in sales by the time all is said and done.

TBH I think many PSP owners will not be sure of FPS on the console. I know I'm not keen due to lack of second stick.

I'll probably give it a go as the reviews are decent but this isn't the type of game I normally look to on the PSP.

Not amazing sales BUT it will be the first PSP game in a long time to be able to crack 100k without the help of Japan. It's doing a decent job of bringing back hype to a system that seemed to be dying for a while in the US. Should be interesting later this year when other big titles make their PSP transitions..
